Isn't the average computer, mobile phone going to be wholly inadequate for this to be profitable? I'm a little skeptical but I kinda like the idea.
The bit coin premise is to make it harder and harder as time goes on so this process is only going to net less and less as time goes on
Indeed. This might've worked 5-10 years ago when CPUs could mine profitably and nobody was running off battery. Now it's hard to make money even with dedicated hardware stacked in a warehouse...
Nevertheless it's an interesting concept.
